We had proceeded on the road mentioned above for thirty-six miles, without eating or sleeping, except a short halt about mid-day, until Saturday morning, when our cavalry came rapidly to the rear division, and informed us of the rapid approach of the enemy.

to the crest of the mountain on the right, to guard against approach from that quarter. No defenses had been thrown up on that ridge. Some fields, with stumps and felled timber beyond, reached this crest of the mountain. A portion of the enemy, led by a Union man from western Virginia who was familiar with the locality, turned to the left about a mile down the turnpike and reached the field in front of Johnson's right by a trail which led into a road coming into a field near his rear. Hansborough's pickets discovered this approach and reported the enemy coming in strong force. They advanced, some 2,000 men, in line of battle at about 7:15 a. m. and promptly opened a terrific musketry fire, which was bravely responded to by the 300 Confederates on the crest of the ridge. As soon as this firing began, Johnson ordered two companies of the Twelfth Georgia, that had been posted about a quarter of a mile down the turnpike, to move to the support of the right; he also sent three other

Tallaferro's 231 Regiment, Colonel Jackson's Regiment, Colonel Fulkerson's 37th Regiment, and the Georgia Regiment, Colonel Ramsey, and a small Battalion under Colonel Hansborough, all under the immediate charge of General Garnett, was forced to take the only route left us.

om the Northwesta reconnaissance and retreat — health of soldiers &c Camp Bartow, Green brier River,Pocahontas co.Va., Sept, 17, 1861, On the 19th inst., five regiments from Gen. Jackson's command--Cols. Rust's, Johnson's, Scott's, Hansborough's, and Fullerton's --left Camp Bartow, ostensibly for the purpose of reinforcing Gen. Lee, who, report said, was about closing in on the Yankees at Huttonsville. After a few hours' march, however, by the Huntersville road, the gladsome joy ofn, calmly surveyed the scene before us, considered the probabilities of the result of a charge, and satisfied that we could not storm their fort without great loss, (the opinion of Lieut. Col. Barton,) we withdrew further into the woods, where Hansborough had been engaging and killed the few who dared to venture from their den. We broke up one or two teams destined to Huttonsville for supplies, took an assistant Commissary in an Ohio regiment prisoner, left their dead and dying scattered throug
ounded two, and captured three. The enemy retired. No men were ever more desirous of a visit from friends than our gallonage fellows seemed to be this morning of a hostile attack from their Yankee neighbors on Cheat Mountain; but no attack will be made. Their reception on the 3d was not such as to encourage a renewal. We see accounts of numerous promotions in the army around about Manassas; why should not Colonels Johnson and Taliaferro be made brigadiers, and Lt. Cols. Jackson and Hansborough, (who have all the campaign commanded efficiently brave though small bands of starwar textiles from the Northwest,) be promoted to full Colonelcy? By the way, the superseding of Col. Jackson in the command of the 31st Regiment, is deemed a strange proceeding by his friends and the army generally, and we understand he has resigned. Col. J.'s popularity in his own section is a source of strength to our cause in that quarter. He is brave and prudent, and inspires his men with perfect conf
bted to the politeness of Lieut. Ed. Alfriend, of company E., for the above returns.] This regiment has a number on the sick list and also on detached service. Major Reger's battalion gave their entire vote for Davis and Stephens. For the 15th Congressional District, Ro. Johnston got 31 and Morrall 2 votes. For the 11th District, Col. Baldwin received 38, Harper 36, Coffman 1, Stein 1, and Baylor 1 vote. Rice's battery voted with this battalion. In Col. Reynold's brigade, (formerly Jackson's) the 31st regiment, gave Ro. Johnston 133 and Morrall 36 votes for the 15th Congressional District. For the 14th District, Kidwell got 30 and Russell 10 votes. The full vote for Davis and Stephens. Major Hansborough's battalion, Robt. Johnston got 40 and Morrall 3 votes for the 15th Congressional District. The above is official and may be relied on. Excuse the manner in which it is written, as it is so cold that your correspondent can scarcely hold his pen in his hand. Ned.
